From the ashes comes a phoenix. Tonight I was in a mood, far worse than the shat that the multi-poser, pardon me, multi-poster, could spat. So what do I do? Go to 11.06.79. I have heard 11.05 a million and one times. But the 6th? I think never. And it is what brought be back to center. The whole second set, from Terrapin, to Playin, Black Peter and Good Lovin', well it smacked me upside the head and brought on a new mood. And it is good. Brothers and Sisters, please, listen up, jump to set two and relax. This is some of the most intraspective jamming I have ever heard. Turn out the lights and take a trip with me...

Subject: My Favorite Show Of All Time

Strong words, I know. I've listened to a lot of shows, and I keep coming back to this one over and over again. The fall of 1979 was a very hot time for The Boys, and I strongly feel this has to do with the addition of Brent. By the time the fall of '79 came around, he'd been in the band for a little bit and had started adding lots of new voices with the B3, synth and strong piano playing. As a result, everybody else in the band became rejuvinated and the playing is fresh. This led to some of the most cerebral music I've personally ever heard.

As somebody else has already reviewed the first set, I'll focus on the second. Terrapin Station is slow, but not lethargic. It is deliberate, like a lazy river; flowing, with purpose, but not in a hurry. Jerry's leads are sinuous, Brent's comping is exceptional, and Phil is dropping bombs left and right. After the final lick, you hear Bob start to count for the next song, and you hear Jerry say, "Do it to me!"

Then, the epic: Playin' In The Band. Strong tempo, Bob's voice in great shape, Brent's harmonies are right on. After the final verse, Brent immediately siezes the lead right out of the chute. Playing lines on the B3, Brent weaves in and out of the melody suggested by all the string players. After a minute or two, Jerry comes in, Brent switches to a Rhodes-style piano voice, and Bob starts playing Chords From Hell. The drummers are the fascinating thing here; while everybody continues to vamp and solo in 4/4 time, the drummers easily slide into The Eleven. The match is exquisite.

The jam that follows is the singular reason why I love this band. Playing spontaneous composition, really reaching for it, this jam is balls-out cerebral, ethereal, and sublime. Jerry and Brent trading leads, Bob comping and Phil suggesting yet another melodic line with his bass, all come together as one. The sum is truly greater than the individuals. Crescendos build, then drop, then regroup and build again. Wave upon wave of intensity, fresh ideas popping out from every twist and turn. This culminates with Brent on clavinet, Phil dropping bomb after bomb, and they all reach the pinnacle moment. Then, everybody just STOPS PLAYING. You're left hanging there, feeling like Wiley Coyote after going over the cliff, just suspended in mid-air. It is FANTASTIC.

The peak-and-valley pattern is repeated over and over here, until Brent slides into some "outside" keyboard runs, leading to the downward spiral into wierdness. This eventually culminates with Phil inducing feedback from his bass, Bob and Brent making bird chirps, and Jerry playing fast arpeggios. Enter Drums.

Nothing wimpy here...big, fat bass drums, guiros, giving way to tar and gongs. As Billy starts playing the gongs, Mickey screams, "Yeah man, keep going!" Mickey keeps holding the tar to the microphone, causing it to feed back. It sounds like outtakes from the Apocalypse Now sessions.

Space is nice and wierd, with Phil feedback and Jerry's distorted noodling. Then, a quick slide into Black Peter. Slow, intense, and perfect. Exceptionally soulful, with vocals that are right on. Brent's B3 playing makes you feel like you're at a psychedelic church revival.

Good Lovin'....it rocks. High energy, lots of tight soloing, and the Bobby scream in the last chorus is amazing.

End it all with a hard, tight rendition of US Blues. Thus ends one of the best Grateful Dead sets I've ever heard.

I've probably listened to this set well over a thousand times over the last 20-plus years, and I keep going back to it over and over again. It induces tears and goosebumps in me every single time. This show is one for the ages, and I hope you find it as inspiring and fulfilling as I do.

Sean K.

I'm going to have to take another listen and listen for Jerry saying, "Do it to me!" and later in drumz Mickey's "Yeah man, keep going!"

Couldn't have described it better myself:
"You're left hanging there, feeling like Wiley Coyote after going over the cliff, just suspended in mid-air. It is FANTASTIC."

Well it is good to know that it wasn't just me or where I was at that this show just lit up the sky for me.

Careful, Wine, you see the shit-storm I stirred up with my 79 references? Apparently there are some folks in these parts who apparently don't appreciate us focusing on the masterpieces out there. Perhaps we should begin calling out the crappier shows?

Thanks for the list. SDH suggested:

"You can start with the show a few nights later: 11/9/79

Dancin>Franklin's>Estimated>He's Gone>Jam>D/S>Wharf Rat"


From the sounds of it Brent is channeling the funkadelic mothership in Dancin. Wow!

references is plural, what you did it call out a single show over and over thats not references, that a reference, singular, get it? has to be the third time youve said the same thing and i keep responding with the same answer, you must be extremely dense.

If someone confronts me with it I will only say I'm just having some fun. No harm, no foul. HaHaHa. I think this is funny.

Oh wait, (insert lame attempt to post some about the Dead)
I really like 4/27/69. The Dark Star>St. Stephen>The Eleven is just fan-fuckin-tastic.

They've started threads with your name stating what a complete worthless fuckin douche you are. Wallow in it, be happy. That's all you get. Everyone on this site thinks you're a dick.

Me, I get to go back to my other, well-respected screen name. You know, the one where other people respond to my posts in kind and trade shows with me. The screen name that enjoy's good conversation with other kind people on here.

Oh, you wouldn't know about any of that, would you?
Maybe you should change your name to Self-Pity.

So you want a crappy show suggestion? Here, take this one from my memory. The last show I saw and Garcia was not on his A-game.
